Get into the groove

Well, it's been a long summer. There's been lots of sun, plenty of fun and a real sense amongst the crew that life is great. Yesterday was our first real exercise since the summer ended. As luck would have it, it was a delightful morning, sunny, hot and flat calm. As you do on these occasions we got every bit of kit out that we carry and had a play with it all.Jo and Craig went into the cliff in our shiny new 'x' boat as part of a breeches buoy and investigated the shoreline.The rest of the crew handled the anchor, created search patterns and rigged up the emergency steering.The ILB was out too and seemed to be having a good exercise playing in amongst the rock gardens which make up the base of the cliffs between Anvil and St Aldhelm's head.

Get into the groove
Boy you've got to prove
Your love to me, yeah
Get up on your feet, yeah
Step to the beat
Boy what will it be

You failed to mention the length of time that you took to get into and out of 'the groove'!

Hmm, yes, thanks for reminding me of that! If only I had had a photo of it I would have posted something!
